A note on the trial of two insecticides for the control of the red hairy caterpillar, Amsacta spp. on groundnut in Thanjavur District



A note on the trial of two insecticides for the control of the red hairy caterpillar, Amsacta spp. on groundnut in Thanjavur District



Madras Agricultural Journal 57(9): 478-479



Following a severe outbreak of Amsacta albistriga (Wlk.) and A. moorei (Btlr.) on groundnut in the Thanjavur district of the Indian State of Madras in October 1969, two further insecticides were tested for the control of these pests. Dichlorvos (Nuvan) as normal- and low-volume sprays (100 and 50 ml in 100 litres water/acre) gave 91.6 and 86.9% kill of the larvae, respectively, in 48 h, in spite of heavy rain immediately after application.
